Description

Meritage is a premium blend of Bordeaux reds, the 2014 vintage consisting of 50% Hillside Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Kocsis Cabernet Franc and 23% Laundry Merlot. 2014 was a cool growing season and the previous winter was very cold and hard on the vineyards, resulting in a light crop. Because of this only 1,000 bottles were produced. This Meritage is quite approachable with aromas of cigar box cedar, tart blueberry and dried mint leaf notes. The palate experiences smooth and well integrated tannins with blueberry, pomegranate and eucalyptus flavours. A truly beautiful example of a Bordeaux Blend.
